When I get the evals on paper, I can fill them in immediately. No risk of forgetting something. In this case I prefer to hand them over to someone and not leave them lying on my seat or table.
When there are more speakers to be evaluated on one sheet, I prefer to get the paper in advance so that I can evaluate each speaker immy after his/her speech, before someone else enters the stage. Also, at the end of the conference, everybody just wants to go home. You might get more forms back when participants can start filling in earlier.
Electronic evals I should receive directly after the conference in order not to forget. Downside of electronic: When I’m back at my office, I have plenty of things to take care of and I might not take the time anymore to provide feedback (unless I was really enthusiastic about the event).
Questions I would ask:
Was the topic relevant?
Was the presenter talking clearly and loud enough?
Was the duration of the presentation OK?
Are you likely to implement what you have learned during the presentation? Why?
Did the presentation contain enough practical examples? Did you feel the audience was involved?
Have your questions been answered? Did your expectations get fulfilled?
Was the duration of the conference OK?
Did you get enough opportunitites to network?
Would you recommend this conference to others? Why (not)?
